If you install an OS other than the factory OS, data may be deleted or the computer may not start. Before You Start About the Product Capacity Representation Standard About the capacity representation of the storage The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes. However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation. (E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB, 80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB) In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even smaller because some programs such as Recovery may reside in a hidden area of the HDD. About Memory Capacity Representation The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual capacity of memory. This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory or claims it for further use. (E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report the capacity as 1,022MB or less) Chapter 1 Getting Started 5 Safety Precautions For your security and to prevent damage, please read the following safety instructions carefully.

Be careful that once the recovery area is deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore. The capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD) in Windows is different from the product specifications. •• The capacity of the storage device (HDD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes. However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity. This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does not mean the installed HDD is different from the product specifications. •• The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity because some programs occupy a certain area of the HDD outside of Windows. •• For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution uses a hidden area of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save the recovery image, and that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to Windows. The size of Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because of the different size of applied programs. Chapter 5.

Regulatory Compliance Statements Health and safety information Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals Certification Information (SAR) Chapter 5. Appendix 103 SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output. This product contains embedded radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the exposure limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. government. These FCC exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two expert organizations, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn from industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF energy. Before a new model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the exposure limit established by the FCC. Tests for each model are performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on the body) as required by the FCC. The exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC requires wireless devices to comply with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC exposure limit incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the public and to account for any variations in measurements. SAR information on this and other model can be viewed on-line at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC ID number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may be necessary to remove the battery pack to find the number.

Analog video is output through this cable. Glossary Chapter 5. Appendix DVD (Digital Versatile Disk) IEEE802.XX DVD was developed to replace CD (compact disk). Although the shape and size of the disc are the same as that of a CD, the capacity of a DVD is at least 4.7GB while the capacity of a CD is 600MB. DVD video is digital unlike VHS (analog) video and supports MPEG2 compression and digital audio. To play a DVD, a DVD drive is required. This is a set fo specifications developed by the 802 committee of IEEE for the LAN connection method called XX. Firewall A security system used to protect an internal network or intranet from external networks through an authentication procedure. HDMI This is a digital video / audio interface specification that transmits video and audio signals over a single cable. Hibernation Mode A power mode that saves all data in memory to the hard disk and turns the CPU and hard disk off. When canceling Hibernation Mode, all application programs that were running are restored to their last state. Icon This refers to a small image that represents a file that users can use. 117 LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network connecting computers, printers and other devices within a local area such as within a building. A LAN enables all connected devices to interact with other devices on the network. The current LAN uses the Ethernet media access control method developed in the early 1980s. To connect to an Ethernet, a network card called a LAN card, Ethernet card or network interface card is required. To exchange data between computers, a protocol is required besides the hardware equipment. Windows uses TCP/IP as the default protocol. LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) There are Passive Matrix and Active Matrix LCD types. This computer uses the Active Matrix type LCD called a TFT LCD. Since an LCD is implemented by transistors instead of a cathode-ray tube unlike a CRT, its size can be slim. And because it does not blink, it reduces eye strain. Glossary Chapter 5. Appendix 118 Network Protocol A group of computers and devices, such as printers and scanners, connected by a communications link. A network can be either small or large and can be connected permanently through cables or temporarily through telephone lines or wireless links. The biggest network is the Internet, a worldwide network. A protocol is a set of rules used by computers to communicate with each other across a network. A protocol is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection, communication, and data transfer between computing endpoints. It defines the data transmission procedures and the transmission medium for more efficient network functions. Network Administrator A user who plans, configures and manages network operations. Sometimes, a network administrator is called a system administrator. Notification Area This refers to the right area of the Taskbar including program icons such as the volume control, the power options and the time. Partition This refers to the act or practice of dividing the storage space of a hard disk drive into separate data areas known as partitions. If a 100GB hard disk drive is partitioned into 2 x 50GB partitions, the hard disk drive can be used as if there are 2 hard disk drives. Quick Launch This refers to a toolbar that can be configured so that you can launch a program such as Internet Explorer or display the Windows Desktop with one click. You can add any icon to the quick launch area of the Taskbar and launch frequently used program by clicking that icon.
